The Cloud Roads as Kindle Daily Deal

Okay, first big news:

The Cloud Roads is the SF/F Kindle Daily Deal for a $1.99, Yay! This is the first time I've been a daily deal, so it's kind of exciting. If you were ever thinking of trying it out, or trying to get someone else to try it out, this is a good cheap opportunity. Also, it helps the chances of me being able to write more in this world, at least novellas.

The aim is to draw attention to imbalances in literary coverage.

I just finished re-reading The Cloud Roads yesterday, and just lent it to one of my co-workers. It is such a great book (and series)! I will paste the link around and hopefully you can hook a few more readers :D

Awesome! :D Hopefully this will drive some more exposure for you and your Raksura books.

reposting your book link on FB so every fantasy reader i know will see it. the Raksura books are so awesome!

anytime! four of my friends said they bought it. i replied, "i'm luring you into purchasing the next two volumes, because you won't be able to stop reading these." ;-) i hope it works!

I also reposted the link to Cloud Roads on FB, with my enthusiastic endorsement :)

Posted to FB also, and have had one reply thus far from my cousin who said he'd buy it.

I just saw that, and passed the news along to my FB friends and blog readers. I might have used a few more exclamation points than The Elements Of Style generally endorses.
